Country star Miranda Lambert lets the music do the talkin'. She doesn't buy into the trashy tabloid rumors; instead, her double-album The Weight of These Wings speaks louder than she possibly could. During her promo circuit in support of the LP, she stopped by "Late Night" last night (Dec. 6) to make the TV debut of her new single "We Should Be Friends," a rough 'n tumble, blue-collar anthem. Suited up in a frilly blue-jean jacket with guitar in-hand, Lambert blessed a few hearts with the sweet sound of funk, the apt follow-up to the album's gritty lead single "Vice."

Last month, The Weight of These Wings bowed at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums scorecard with 122,000 copies sold. With the inclusion of streaming numbers, the set moved 133,000 equivalent-units, enough for a No. 3 placement on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart.

Earlier this week, Lambert netted two Grammy nominations for "Vice," in the Best Country Song (sharing duties with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne) and Best Country Solo Performance. The 59th annual Grammy Awards are slated for Feb. 12 with James Corden as host.
